Energy crisis - Energy prices
Europe is facing an unprecedented energy crisis with living costs skyrocketing – fuelled by Putin’s war in Ukraine. All over Europe people are facing high energy bills, while winter is coming. We must take action now to make sure everybody can heat their homes, without compromising on food or other basis needs.

Kim and Michael will answer questions on:
- the causes behind the energy crisis and the struggles we will face to prevent people across Europe from falling into energy poverty.
- the emergency meeting by EU Energy ministers and discuss the proposals by Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.
- the different policy options that they see to overcome this crisis and its social consequences, both on level of the EU and of the member states.
